[New-bugs-announce] [issue13259] __bytes__ not documented

New submission from Arkadiusz Wahlig <arkadiusz.wahlig at gmail.com>:

It looks like Python 3 supports the __bytes__ magic method (called by bytes(obj)). However, it's not documented anywhere.

Also, I could not find any reference to BDFL accepting it but it looks like it got in anyway.

Here are some posts back from 2007 where he argues against it:
